Freclal to The Moknixg Call
Hkbced, Oct 23.— Merced County pare
to Colonel Markham to-day a most novel
end at the same time one of the most at
tractive receptions yet tendered him during
the canvass. It was all the more creditable
to the city when it is said that the arrange
ments in a large measure had been devised
nnd carried out by ladies. ' To them belongs
the credit for it, and the manner in which
they carried out the entire programme is
certainly worthy of commendation. The
future Governor is more than pleased, and
Is loud in his praise of those who did so
much to make bis brief visit here one to be
remembered for a lone time.
• The party, accompanied by G. G. Blanch
ard, left Modesto at 3 o'clock to-day, arriv
ing here a little more than an hour later.
At 'SVaterford they were met by a com
mittee of prominent Republicans, who had
been delegated to welcome the distinguished
guests. When the train pulled iuto the
depot fully 1000 citizens, among whom were
many Democrats, had asseub'td and the two
bands made the hit redolent with strains of
. music. Forty little girls, all in white, and
none of whom were more than 7 years of
age, were drawn up in two lines en the plat
form, and a pathway left between them had
been literally strewn with flowers, over
the Colonel walked as he passed to the
El Cnpitan Hotel, Yvhe/e rooms had
been reserved for the party in advance. As
Colonel Markhaiu passed between the lines
of children the latter closed in behind him
and accompanied him to the parlor-", which
had been decqrati d in the most beautiful
style. On a large mirror at the end of the
roam was " Welcome to our next Governor"
in evergreen, while the walls were almost
eonceuled from sight by flowers, palms and
filken banners. It was in fact a perfect
lower of fluwerg, and presented the most
attractive appearance. Following is the list
of .dies who superintended the decorations:
lirs. J. I!. Simi nsnn. Mrs. W. W. Westbay,
Mrs. J. A. Mackenzie, Mrs. W. M. Sell,
Mrs M S. Huffman, Mrs. C. E. Fleming,
Miss Minnie Cumins, Miss Carrie Lepgett.
When Colonel JJarkhnm rea lied the par-
Iprsan immense concourse of people crowded
to meet him and for two hours the hotel was
a scene ot c.Cut animation. Hundreds
passed in to ex -haute greeting* with the
popular Republican leader and to bid him
welcome to the locality. Fur each he had a
pleasant word and warm grasp of the hand,
and none nut him but went away with kind
feeling for the genial gentleman who is
making such a ghlLtnt ri-ht.
Until the hour of dinner arrived people
kept pouring in, and it was with the greatest
difficult) that lie was enabled to escape for
surhiiti.t tiuie to partake of a meaL After
d'nncr an open-air rueeiine was held in the
square near the hotel. There were fully
1500 in attendance. They bad come not
only Iron) tho city, but from the surroun<l-
Ing country, and the wild cheers with which
they greeted both Markbam and Blanchard
were indication of the feeling of enthusi
asm among Republicans.
Both the gentlemen named spoke at some
length and were followed by J. C. Campbell,
who has been doing yeoman service among
the people in the San Joaquin Valley, with
whom he is deservedly popular. Alter the
meeting another reception was held in the
hotel parlor, end hundreds exchanged greet
ings with Colonel Mark ham. The party
lelt at 11 o'clock to-uight for Fresno, where
great preparations have been made for a
moostt-r ikiuoDstratijn to be held to-mor
row night.

THE SUGAR TItUST.
Decision in the Litigation Cafe cf C-meron
vs Eavemayer.
New York, Oct. 2a— Judge Pratt of
Brooklyn filed a decision this inornin£ in the
case of Cameron vs. Ilavemeyer, being
what is known a.s the Sugar Trust litigation.
On the preliminary motion to modify the
injunction, Judge Prat says: "The want
of time and pressing duties prevent sued
careful examination of the papers before me
as I would likp to m:ike before acting on
the present inotii n. besides. I do not see
any pressing necessity for immediate de
cision, as the matter will be fully argued in
a very short time. Indeed, retieetiun has
satisfied me. the piopo-eil modification 01 the
injunction involves question* of so serious a
character that they otißlit not to be disposed
of in such a summary manner. If, however,
the defendants or any persons interested
feel that serious inconvenience will result
from this disposition of the matter, I will
fix an earlier date for a hearing on the
merits. I will hear the whola matter to
morrow or Saturday on two hours' notice to
the plaintiff, which is far preferable than to
hearing the, matter in p irt."

ELECTION FRAUDS.
High-Handed Proceedings of a
Partisan Board.
Begiitrar Smiley Accuses 11. Leviaeston of
Fraudulent Bseistration, and Will Have
Him Cited Before the Authciities.
There never has been a meeting of tho
Election Commission of this or any other
administration characterized by such oro
ceedines as yesterday's. Others have been
noiser and more disgraceful in conduct, but
the hand of fraud has never shown itself so
openly and above board.
Auditor Strothar was more than usually
precnant with buncombe, and the time that
w:is not consumed in consummating tlie jobs
of the Democrntic County Committee was
spi-nt by him in vilifying the Registrar and
posing for the populace.
An obscure politician named Dougherty
demanded of the Registrar why it was that
Mr. VoHers, who had been nppuinted by the
Democratic County Committee to assist in
purging the register, had not been permit
ted to prosecute his work?
Mr. Smiley replied that a man unknown
to him walked into his oflice and com
menced taking unusual liberties with the
records. He stated who he was and who
sent him there, and then demanded the rec
ords, lie was told tbat he was not wanted
nnd invited to keep out of the office, but that
if he insisted upon seeking the list of cita
tions he could do so in the Supervisors' cham
bers, where the commission met.
THE EVENT OF THE -MEETING.
The greatest buist aud confusion ot the
meeting, however, occurred when Dougherty
dec ared that something is going wrong in
the matter of citations, when old Mid re
spected citizens ara CHlled upon to appear
aud explain thrir citizenship.
Strother took this as a [winter to air him
self and. after swelling up, launched out
one of his characteristic tirades. He had
can-fully prepared and studied the speech
beforehand, and w.-.s able to get it off with
great dramatic effect, that is to please the
gallery and those to whom he always caters.
lie occasionally, but found little
difficulty in filling in the gars.
Afier the meeting was overlie sent the
manuscript ilowu to an evening paper that
be partly owns, with instructions to print it
with great care find place it in a prominent
position.
In his speech he reviewed the r.cts of the
commission up to date, laying great stress
always on the personal pronoun "1." He
criticized the nets of the Registrar in the
niHttcr of excluding the appointed clerk
from his office as exceeding his authority,
lie thought it the duty of the commission to
insist iu> m the appointed clerks having
access to the records of the Registrar, and he
moved that four expert clerks be appointed
by the board to examine the matter of
Citations, and if Mr. Smiley refused to per
mit them access to his records, to apply to
the courts for a writ of mandate to compel
him to recognize such clerks. The speaker
laid great stress upon his deiire to purify
the registration.
CARKIED HIS OWN MOTION.
Notwithstanding the attempt of Com
missioner O'Brien to explain that Mr.
Smiley is doing all that coul.i be d< ne to
puige the register and had no use for more
clerks Strotuer put his motion without cou
siderHt:o:i and d>-clari.\l it carried.
He then explained that two of the fmir
clerks would te Democrats, and two Re
publicans, and claimed that such appointees
would have a right, under direction of the
Commissioners, to go into Mr. Srniley's of
fice records for the purpose ot- examining
and tallying citations.
Attorney Ackeimau thought the commis
sion wss adopting a course which «ould
fail short of its object. No doubt Mr.
Smiley would refuse the new clerks access
to his records, and the Supreme Court is
now at Los Amides and it could not avail
for any application of mandamus. lie thought
the doubtful list should be taken up and
dealt with consecutively.
Mr. Durn agreed to the proposition, and
right on the heels of it a scene followed.
Even body desired to speak, and all ittonce.
James Ryan w;is cited because he had lost
his naturalization papers. 'llm Citation was
dismissed. The same course was taken as
to l'ierre Jacobs.
Alexander Van Gleason had been refused
registration because he had not resided thirty
days in the- precinct. The voter said he had
resided in the precinct with his family seven
or eight years, but is frequently absent in.
the country. Citation dismissed.
Isaac Levingston said he had resided for
sixty days at the Overlaud House, 533 Sac
ramento street, \vi:ere he works. He Keeps
a part of his clothing at his brother's house,
ami calls his homo 1516 d'Fanell street
His register from the Overland House was
allowed to stand, Mr. O'Urien voting no.
This case occupied the board fully fUteeu
minutes.
A DEMOCRATIC HOTBED.
M. A. Levingston, formerly an owner of
the Overland House, the hotbed of Demo
cratic colonies, was callpd to explain how
he came to be registered from thi Overland
when his residence is 1215 Octa via street.
It was stated that every year for ten years
his name appeared in the Directory as re
siding on Octavia street, but that he al
wajs has registered from the hotel. Mr.
Doru claimed that he should register from
his family hguie, while Mr. Hayes claimed
that he had a right to register fiom the
hotel if he wanted to. This was such a
rank case of fraud tbat even the parthan
commission could not swallow it, and it or
dered Mr. Levingston transferred to his
proper precinct in the Western Addition.
William J. Fitzgerald had changed his
room in thu same house only aud his cita
tion wns dismissed.
Edgar Moore said he had resided at the
W'hnt Cheer House since June last. Ire
Cinct Officer L. J. Bart said he was marked
doubtful, as not residing in the precinct
long enough. His registration was allowed
to stand.
Dr. Lovejoy cfrtified that he had resiled
ninety days in the county, and ho was al
lowed to vote.
Ernest Hold had lived in the precinct
where registered for months, but had moved
iuU) another precinct. His registration was
canceled, under a decision of the Supreme
Court.
Nathan L. Walters said lie had resided
eight mouths where registered, aud his
name, was left undisturbed.
John Cannon does business in this city,
but sleeps at his home in San Mateo County,
l'art ot his family resides there and part In
this city. It was decided that ho should
vote in San Mateo County.
Michael Sullivan is an inmatft of Al
White's lodeing-housc, at 4Si Kast street.
Ho was asked by Attorney Ackerman how
much be paid for bis room. Mr. O'iinen
aud Attorney Dorn objected to the question,
but the Commissioners allowed it. He did
not know what he paid. Did not know how
many rooms there are in the building, nor
did tie know any of tho fifty-three persons
registered from the same house of oue floor.
All were marked doubtful.
It was decided not to he;ir any more cita
tions from this place until the commission
had investigated it personally. Mr. Bendt's
place near Hie fojt ol Clay street was also to
be investigated.
WHITE'S LODGIN'Ci-IIOUSE.
The Commissioners met at White's place
in the afternoon and were shown around
willingly by White himself, lie explained
that the men who are registered from his
place worked all alone the water-front, and
very frequently across the bay. They would
have a job that wculd last three or four
days and would be eono for that length of
tune, mid would then return nnd stay at his
place for a couple of days-. They made his
saloon their headquarters and their home.
Golue through the house thirty beds were
found in nine rooms. Ono room had seven
beds in it; one had five and another four;
two hid three, and four rooms contained
five beds. The beds were simply cots, and
had no bedding on them save a comlorter.
At the back of the bar-room were three
small rooms, all of which haU two cots in
them.
At Uendi's place on Clay street th«e were
fourteen rooms, all well furnished. The
eleven men from his placo were cited to ap
pear on the l!sih iust.
Late in the evening a reporter called on
Mr. Smiley to see if he had anything to say
about the day's proceedings, and, indeed,
found he tiad a deal of interesting gossip,
and a few little plans on hand tiiat muv
prove of immense interest to certain parties
before this campaign is over.
PLENTY OF NEWS ON HAND.
"Plenty of news on hand," said he;
" news about depriving voters of their priv
ileges rather than of securing them. The
boldest attempt is now Lclug made under
the cry of "purging the roll' to deprive hon
est, legitimate voters of their rights."
•'How can this be doueV"
"Why, take to-day's proceedings of the
Election ISoard. Uy the way, the board con
sists of three Democrats— i'ond, Strother
and Flotirnoy, who nre partisan candidates
for re election— and one Republican, O'Brien,
who is also in the fame category. Mr.
Strother, vho desires to appear as the great
'Poobali' of the board, and who does all
tho talking for the beard, makes all the mo
tions aud indulges in all the abuse, opened
the ball by wasting half nn hour in an ora
tion tilled with personal abuse of me.
" Time belnc too precious to waste on tho
City PoobnH 1 treated him with contempt,
which only aggravated his disposition for
quarreling. At this juncture the Chairman
of the Democratic County Committee chipped
In to know why the orders of the County
Committee had not been obeyed. vMy reply
to this was that I found a stranger in my
office ordering my clerks, and finding him
extremely offensive in his deportment I es
corted him to the door. ~> = X ;
TUYING TO RUN THE OFFICE.
"The fact Is th.it the Democratic County
Committee, through Mr. Auditor Strother,
wishes to run mv office— to which I natur
ally demurred. Mr. Strothei's constant ef
fort has been to bully and browbeat me.
Two years ago, haying succeeded in bully
ing aud extinguishing my predecessor, lie
has continually tried to worry me to an
early grave; but, as my brain is of harder
stuff, ho has not yet made mo lose my senses.
"Mr. Strother, after his vile attack on
me supported the resolution, that 'no cita
tions or challenges should be recognized or
entertained until the challenges or citations
made by the officers of the l'recinet Board
were considered.' This means, in fact,
'made by two Democratic precinct officers,
for in many precincts none but them have
signed."
•'What was the character of their chal
lenges?"
"In many Instances the most frivolous
reasons were Riven. By law a naturalized
■ citizen must give time and place of natural
ization, the Riving of court not being a ne
cessity. Times without mini "Don t re
member the court,' is put down as cause of
challenge, while in other cases these Ben go
unchallenged, even in the most apparent
cases. 'll is father was never in America. l
and 'registers in the name of his stepfather's
pa; ers.' In these instances in one precinct
the party is registered at 301 street.
The (i racer's comments and challenge* are
in bis own words, \My mistake, should be
No. 310.' Still it is in the challenge column,
and these men have to be cittd, and failing
to appear are stricken off the roll.
LACKING THE VITAL ELEMENT.
" I have at least 200 affidavits of natural
ized citizens that lack the vital element of
registration, viz., time and place of natural
ization, and yet not one of these are noted
for challenge by the precinct tfficrrs."
" What is your idea of the plans of the
Democratic leaders?"
"To my mind the watch-word of 'don't
register nt the City Hall' was the beginning.
A crowd of partisans was continually pass
ing that word around, even taking an affi
davit out of the hands of a voter and telling
him to register nt the precinct registration.
This effort was met by great efforts on my
part to induce all to avoid registering at the
precincts, and in this we were partially suc
cessful.
"They saw the large registration at the
City Hall, and were moved by the ma
chinery of their bureaus to extra exertions.
Tho large registration at the (Ji'y Hall was
considered by them to betoken the strength of
the Republican party, and. it had to be over
come at nil hazards, hence the large in
crease in the precinct registration. Now
they sire challenging right and left.
" Men of humble life, who have lived in
their own homes for years; professional men
well known, artisans with a large acquaint
ance in the neighborhood; coal-dealers,
who from their occupation attract atten
tion, and whose term of residence must be
well known, arc all marked doubtful, sum
moned to the City Hsill, must spend half a
day in awaiting the conclusion of Auditor
Strother's frothy harangues, failing in which
off they go from the roll aud ate disfran
chised.
"somebody told him so."
"I ventured to ask J. L. Hart, the
Democratic inspector, how he knew the
fact of non-residence of the parties in his
precinct, Third of tlio Twenty-ninth. He
replied 'somebody told him so,' and that
was the best answer 1 could get. The
strange fact is that almost every man In the
What Cheer House and the Capitol House
is challenged by Mr. Hart, while the Over
land House, where he lives, goes scot free
without challenge.
"By the way, the Overland House has
been, until lately, under the ownership of M.
A. Levlngston, member of th» Democratic
County Committee, who, according to the Di
rectory, resides at 1015 Octavia street, yet
swore that he resided at and slept on a table
at the Overland, a clear case of false regis
tration. Which, at my instigation, was reme
died by the Board of Election Commissioners
striking him off tho register, and yet kindly
permitting him to reregister, against all law,
hi a precinct in which he swore ha did not
live.
"Mill in spite of the order if the Election
Commissioners 1 propose to fully perform
my doty as prescribed by law, Section 6 of
the Registration Act making it obligatory to
send a notice 'to any one who I think is
illegally or improperly on the register.'
This being done my power is exhausted,
and if the partisan Board of Election Com
missioners fails in its duty at the command
of the Democratic County Committee I will
put the matter in the hands of the United
States Supervisors, to be dealt with in ac
cordance with United States law."'
rRKCINCT RATION.
Compur.tllTS Flgurrg of Interest at the
I'renent Time.
The following tabulated statement gives
in detail by precincts the registration of this
year just completed, and the comparative
figures of two years ago in the same pre
cincts. The question will at once be asked,
"How is it possible to make comparative
figures by precincts between the two years
whon the boundaries of the precincts have
all been changed and are wholly unlike '.'"
In answer it should be explained that the
figures given under the head of 1888 do not
represent precincts, simp!; the territory now
incorporated in the precincts as changed.
In order to reprecinct the city intelli
gently the districts hud to be sized accord
ing to the number of voters in them, and in
doing that work it was possible to preserve
tiio estimates and compare them with the
same districts this year, which are, in fact,
simply the new precincts.

The Way Made Clear.
One of the most serious obstacles to success In
the way uf man is planted right !n the middle of the
road to health. How to restore an I to maintain a
regular habit of body and digestion Is too often a
source of needless and, unhappily, of vain inquiry.
It Is not necessary to Inveigh against drastic purga-
tives. They who have us d them continuously
know the consequence. A remedy which unites the
action of a regulating medicine for the bowels with
that of a tonic both for ihose organs, the liver and
the stomach, if llostetter's Stomach Bitters, sanc-
tioned by the best medical authority, and receiving
dally the Indorsement of our fellaw-countr/uien.
With this effectual, though gentle, laxative at hand
it is possible to defy those changes 0' temperature
productive of constipation, as well as constitutional
attacks of biliousness, which beset even people
naturally healthy- Malaria, dyspepsia, rheumatism
and kidney troubles are remedied aud prevented by

IMPORTS NOTICE !-
—THE- . ,
People's Home Savings
Takes pleasure in announcing to the public that Its \
new system of S-ccnt deposit stamps Is about ready
for general use, and will be introduced contempo-
raneous with its magnificent steel burglar and fire-
proof safe-deposit vault that is now Hearing comple-
tion.
This deposit-stamp system has proved a marked .
success In England and Germany and In its present
form has reached its most perfect development la
Frankfort. It has also been shown to supply a lonpr-
felt want in such of our American cities as have bad .
time to learn of it and to Introduce it, notably la
Detroit, where, as the cashier writes to us, 150,000
stamps were sold in the first seven weeks by tba ■
Citizens' Savings Hank.
' The People's Home Savings Bank has been watch-
Ins Its operation for some time, and has even corre-
sponded with foreign Consnls'for fuller information
of its workings and has learned that the beneficial
effect claimed by Consul-Ueneral Mason In the March
Consular Report, pages 481-48(5, Is even under-
stated, and that this simple system has done won-
ders in encouraging sin II savings and in pleasantly
Inculcating In youthful minds valuable lessons of
thrift and economy. As Mr. Mason says:
The Frankfort Waving.* Bank has enjoyed from tha «
first a substantial and constantly augmented suc-
cess. It began in 1823 with 294 depositors, the ag-
gregate of whose deposits was 86, in* marks. In,
1870 the depositors numbereJ 12,314 and the capi-
tal of the bam: had risen to 7,743.882 marks. From
that date Its prosperity Increased rapidly, and was
still further augmented by the opening of the penny
savings stamp department, which took place la
18S2, so that at the close of 1888 there wero 56,697
depositors, with an aggregated capital of 38,215,697
marks. The receipts for that year alone were 6,319,-
-276 marks and the disbursements on moneys, with-
drawn by depositors 5,151.602 marks.
Our new stamps are boantlf nl specimens or tae
steel engraver's art, direct from the printing often
of the United States Government's stamps, and will
be supplied to the public through our selected
agents In all parts of the city In any quantities de-
sired, a nil list of our agents appearing shortly la
these pages.
Our agents will receive the name and address of
any girl or boy, small or large, or any grown person
that desires to deposit in the bank, and will glva
such depositor, free, on purchasing at least two
stamps for 10 cents, a blank-book with ten leaves la
It, each leaf ruled In twenty spaces for twenty '
stamps. This book bears a number, and each leaf
tho same number. The number of thl3 book, with,
the name. Is sent by the agent to the bank. When
ever any depositor has filled a sheet with twenty '
stamps. it is mailed by the agent or by the depositor - "
to the bank and then the first dollar Is entered on -
your regular savings-bank deposit book and your .
money begins at once to earn the regular ordinary
deposit interest, and so on with every successive **
leaf in the book ruled off In spaces; and -as fast 43 '
one book Is finished you secure another, and so
continue adding to your savings-bank deposit and *
providing for a rainy day. in the safest aud most
effectual way yet devised by the skill of man.
On this occasion we would also remind the public
that we are now building the most elaborate and '
secure safe deposit vault on oar coast, and at in "
completion we shall take pleasure In inviting a .'
critical Inspection of all Its features. It has five ■
layers of steel, four or which are of the peerless ;
Brooklyn welded chrome steel and one of Bessemer- .'.
steel. And our safes will not only prove the best .
possible treasury or your valuables, but the prices
will be within reach of tbe most modest purse, - "•
In thanking the public for the unbroken and In-
creasing support and encouragement we have re-
, ceived In all our efforts from the very beginning,'
we beg to assura them we shall always striVe. to
prove ourselves) worthy of this unparalleled con ■
